10th World Assembly: The Ring for Peace – A Symbol of Peace

The Ring for Peace sheds light on the guiding theme of the 10th World Assembly and is introduced as a permanent symbol of peace between the religions. The ring stands as a connecting element, which is not fixed to one religion or excludes another. In many world religions, the ring symbolizes loyalty, truthfulness and honesty. The Buddhist Wheel of Life, the signet ring of the Prophet Mohammed in Islam, the Ring of Solomon in Judaism or Lessing’s Ring Parable, are only a few examples.
